My Library Card

All W-TCPL locations will be closed on Monday, Feb. 19, for Presidents' Day.


The Dewey Decimal Classification System is the world's most widely used library classification system. It divides all the world's knowledge into 10 major categories, from 000 to 999.

Each of the 10 major Dewey classes, listed below, has 10 divisions. These are further divided - the more numbers, the more specific the subject. In this way, the Dewey system progresses from the general to the specific. The decimal point is used to make items even more specific.

Books with numbers that begin with a "J" will be found in the Juvenile Room.

If you have any questions when looking for items in the library, we encourage you to ask the library staff for assistance. We're here to help!
